    Talon Fighter not part of early access? - now back in stock

    For once, I actually remembered EA, but the Talon Fighter isn't part of it. Did I miss that announcement (sorry, search function brings up dozens of threads and I don't have time to go through all of them)?

    They put this up on Mattycollector last week - no mention of it not actually being in EA, so was hoping it was "common" misprint by them, obviously not..

    Not a big thing. I just wondered since the ad on the top of the Matty home page gives the dates/times for both EA and the regular sale, and the Talon fighter is very prominently displayed in said ad.

    Yeah, I made the same mistake.

    I'm not too concerned about getting the set on Monday, with that said I'm sure they didn't make as many as Castle Grayskull. So…who knows how long they'll hang around…

    I just hope it lasts long enough don't wife to grab one for my Christmas present...
    (I'm not particularly worried.)
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    This should have been part of EA. What is the point of EA if items outside the sub are not offered there? This was a BIG part of the appeal of Early Access, and has been something we've been told all along is a perk of subscribing. I'm sure it won't be difficult to get during All Access, but it is disappointing to not have the ability to get this in EA.

    Early Access is pointless at this stage in MOTUC. It is only helpful to snag the Chase figure first. Nothing is selling out at this point. If the Talon Fighter was available today, I still would have waited to purchase it with Dragstor to combine shipping.

    Since non-sub items are now not offered in EA, then EA is useless because I sure don't want to end up paying for shipping two packages that should have been one. It's not a perk anymore, and it also stinks that they didn't just say they were doing it instead of sneakily changing their policy without comment.

    I did expect this early access. I do not mind that it is not but it is surprising. I am sorta worried that it will "sell out" and that will not please me.

    I still have to get the Battle Ram and it's still around, maybe we should wait on this? Anyone think it will have a large enough run to be around at least for a little while? I wouldnt mind (if I have the scratch) to pick it up Cyber monday at some point even if it is not itself being sold at sale prices.

    Do I recall correctly that non sale items were pulled during Cyber Monday last year? I expect it not to matter.

    So what do people think about availability? Should we expect a sell out of sorts? Expect a lingering sale like Battleram, even if not as long as that?

    This has always been my concern. What if they didn't make many at all...?

    Hopefully it isn't another case of Rotar and Twistoid...

    I don't know...things could get tricky for now on. A lot of you are using logic from the past and how things have been for awhile now, but that doesn't necessarily apply to the future or the "standalone" based runs.

    As some have mentioned, look at the Twistoid pack.....Totally separate run from anything subscription based and it came and went. Perhaps it was pulled, but perhaps not....One thing is for certain though, Matty has been sitting on extras for quite some time now with practically NO sell outs and that's obviously not good for them.

    They will NEVER get full price for so many of those/these items so the only alternative is to just make a smaller run. It wouldn't make sense for them to make so many of anything anymore when the sales just simply aren't there.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they've tweaked numbers within recent times especially on the non-subbed stuff as it would only benefit them, rather then sitting on so much extra product. With the sub based stuff they've got X amount of people forced into it regardless. Who knows....maybe the sub based DOS items are more or less gravy so it's not as much of an issue when/if it gets marked down, but with stuff like this and no guaranteed buyers to even pay for a base it's a gamble to how many will actually pull the trigger when push comes to shove so it pays not to over due it.

    Of course we don't really know one way or another, but here's to speculating.

    For instance....I'm 100% certain that there will be NO WHERE near the amount of Snake Mountains made as Castle Grayskull especially if they run a Pre-Order.

    It's just too costly to sit on that many extra units with out guaranteed buyers for that amount of time.

    Add this to the already large list of screw ups from the Scott-less Matty team.

    I already addressed this in another thread but not including it in EA is just ludicrous.

    I think I'm going to hold off and have the wife grab this for under the Christmas Tree. I'm definitely going to pick one up but I'm not compelled to grab it day 1. I'm pretty sure it won't sell out unless Matty takes it down.
